procreation of the range or in ben
efit to the forest in the prevention of
lot by fires or otherwise orer the
old system. The disadvantage is all
to the sheepman.
President Thompson in comment
ing on statements of Mr. Cleveland
thought his estimates were very con
servative; his experiences would lead
him to believe that the figures should
be raised materially.
This view was also taken by J. B.
Buddleston of Lone Rock. Mr. Hud
dleston also called attention to the
serious question of getting herders
under this system, stating that it was
next to impossible now to get good
men to accept such work, as they
were strongly opposed to the propo
sition of lying out of nights; such
men as he was able to get would
agree to stay with the sheep on the
bedding out proposition, but his ex
perience proved that they did not do
so, and the sheep were left alone.
He felt that the estimate of tost as
given by Mr. Cleveland was very con
servative. Furthermore, Mr. Hud
dleston was right after the proposi
tion of getting rid of this ruling
and would help all he could in that
Grant Harar of Long Creek also
gave his indorsement to what had
George Sperry, for more than for
ty years extensively engaged in the
sheep game in both Oregon and
Wyoming, and many seasons helped
in trailing of sheep to the eastern
markets, added his testimony regard
ing the proper handling of sheep in
bedding, and plainly showed where
the present system was wrong.
Feeling that the association here
should go on record in a proper way,
President Thompson appointed the
following as a committee on resolu
tions: W. H. Cleveland, J. B. Hud-
dleston, F. Wilkenson, E. 0. Neill
Geo. Krebs and W. P. Mahoney. Act
ing with them were Attorney Bryson
of Walla Wall aand Attorney C. L.
Sweek of Heppner. This committee
got busy at once and brought in.
their report, which was unanimously
accepted, as. follows:
Whereas, the Umatilla Permittees
association, in special session nssem
bled, has gone on record unanimously
opposed to the Forestry regulation
of compulsory one-night bedding of
sheep in the National Forests, and
Whereas, the Wenaha Woolgrowers
association now has appealed to the
Secretary of Agriculture the wisdom
of enforcing said rule in the National
Now, Therefore, be it unanimously
resolved by this association that we
heartily join the Wenaha Woolgrow
ers in their appeal, and that we com
demn as impractical, excessively ex
pensive in application, resulting ii
heavier range losses and of no benefit
in conservation of any natural re
sources, the one night bedding sys
tem. (Signed) W. H. Cleveland, chair
man; J. B. Huddleston, F. Wilken
son, E. 0. Neill, Geo. Krebs, W. P.
Mahoney, resolutions committee.
Following the report of the 'com
mittee the question of financial as
sistance in the matter of the appeal
wa3 taken up. to which the stockmen
present readily responded, and around
$300 was subscribed and paid in for
this purpose, to be used as needed.
The sentiment was also express :d
that the help of tho Oregon Wool
growers association would be much
appreciated in this move of the sheep
men for relief from the ruling re
quiring one night bedding, and they
will likely be asked to co-op- rate at
the coming annual meeting of the
association in January.

A FRANK STATEMENT.
To the Editor:
I wish to make a frank statement
through your paper regarding the
comedy that appeared at the Star the
ater last Sunday night.
With regard to the charcater of the
play be it said that as it was put on it
was exceptionally clean. It was very
much more so than the advertising
might indicate. Our objection was
based upon having known a play.
film, bearing the same name, "The
Girl From Colorado," given some
years ago, and was forbidden in the
city of Salem, to be repeated the sec
ond night. We are glad to know that
the comedy in question was far from
being identical in character with the
film. An appended statement to the
petition, eliminating all reference to
the character of the play, though af
ter it had been presented to the
churches of the city, was given over
my signature, and that should have
been noted by the spokesman for the
What was emphasized in the peti
tion, was the request for Sunday clos
ing. Ihis, the church organizations
did express themselves upon, either
orally or in writing. It will be a sad
day for Heppner, or any other town,
when there is not in it a class of
people who feel it necessary and prof
itable to hold some time sacred for
associations and study for .the deeper
life. Whatever liberties men may
take, there is not a mother's child
in town that does not know that an
utter disregard for the Sabbath is de
moralizing, and few men ever get far
enough from their childhood to be
rid of a sense of shame for its dese
cration. The spokesman of the occasion was
very assertive in his appeal to the
audience, to demand their rights as
American citizens, referring to the
matter of Sunday shows. The asser
tion was of course made upon the fact
(to our everlasting disgrace) that we
have no state Sunday closing law.
Would he say that because we have
no such statute we therefore have in
Oregon no Christian Sabbath? Dare
any man say that there does not exist
in the hearts of a multitude a pro
found regard for the sacred day?
Where does real law abide? On in
flammable paper, or in the life of the
people? It' is no mark of gentleman
ness to tramp upon the conscience
and practice of the men who, with
their toil, their blood and their Chris
tian ideals have laid the foundations
of our honored State.
The statement of "rights as Amer
ican citizens," needs analysis. No
man has a right to breathe upon an
American audience unmodified state
ments of "liberty." When the acid
test is applied some things that sound
well in oratory, may in the analysis
bear color of Hnarchy, bolshevism, or
treason. Dar anyone deny that the
Sabbath as a day of rest and wroship
is on of the foundation stones up
on which tho Republic was estab
lished? Where are th people who have
made no place, (or jarred it out of
its place) a time in which to give
concentrated thought to th moral
and spiritual interest! of life? Whcr
is France today for her infidel at
tempt to alienate herself from Sab
bath keeping? Ask the doughboys
who waded their mud and bled for
them. "Lord God of hosts, be with
us yet, lest wt forget, lest w for
get." E. C. ALF0RD,
Pastor Community Methodist Church.
The Girl From Colorado.
She has com and gone. Her pas
sage across the amusement firma
ment was not particularly spectac
ular, though possessing many attri
butes of a celestial visitor.
She entered Morrow County'i sys
tem via lone, where she was greeted
with great acclaim on the 12th, made
a twenty-four hour turn about the
county seat on the 13th and vanished
on her outward journey through Lex
ington on the 14th.
Like comets of old she was regard
ed by the superstitious and uninform
ed as probably possessing Satanic
characteristics, but like all imaginary
bugbears, in the light of experience,
she proved to be only what she was
Her Heppner visit promised to b a
little disconcerting for a short per
iod, probably because of her choos
ing an unlucky date like th 13th for
her perihelion demonstration.

gossamer does not become too atten

day. If not, we doubt if many years
of travel will furnish her with a
more select audience of the same size.

Apples Aplenty For
The School Children
'Say It with flowers" is a some
what popular slogan and one that
w see published a great deal. This
conveys too much the Idea, however,
that some little attention la to be
paid to on after the scenea of this
life have passed. "Say it with apples"
at Christmas time is mors appro
priate. Santa Claus has left an
abundance of fine Hood River apples
at the atore of Case Furniture com
pany, and Mr. Case has authorized
us to state that this Christmas sea
son he is going to pass some of these
along to th children of th county.
Mr. Case will furnish, free, to all
public school teachers and all com
mittees of the Sunday schools of the
county who are putting on treats for
their pupils, sufficient fine apples to
add to their treat, and there could
be no more appropriate item on th
"bill of fare" than a supply of these
excellent Hood River apples. Figur
out your needs and call on Mr. Case.
